This weekend has marked the return of the first Malaysian Airlines flight, and international freight forwarder, Now Global Logistics, has single-handedly booked cargo to fill over half the flight's available cargo capacity for export.
Now Global Logistics moved quickly to reserve this space for a number of our South Australia based clients. The cargo loaded will include Wine, Food Additives and Therapeutic Water.
The Malaysian Airlines Cargo State Manager has stated that having a full return flight of cargo this weekend bodes well for future flights.
Interestingly, whilst the cost of air cargo is somewhat more expensive due to the current COVID19 issues, we are seeing SA Exporters slowly re-enter the market which is encouraging for a rebounding economy.
The returning flights back to Adelaide have directly helped Now Global Logistics' clients with their exports, by not having to transfer cargo through to flights via Melbourne and not having their export orders cancelled by their overseas customers.
Now Global Logistics has seen export air cargo volumes hit their lowest point in April and are now showing positive signs of recovery, week by week, as more airlines return and transport routes open.
Statement from Tracey Green, Malaysian Airlines Cargo South Australian Manager:
Malaysia Airlines are pleased to support the South Australian export market with the opportunity to utilise cargo capacity on our flight operating from Adelaide on Saturday 4th July 2020.
Malaysia Airlines have supported Adelaide for thirty years, commencing services in 1990, with regular flights from Adelaide connecting via Kuala Lumpur to the rest of the Malaysia Airlines network.
The flight on Saturday will have 25 tonnes of freight ranging from wine, produce, food flavourings to chilled seafood. The freight will be travelling to Malaysia, Sweden, China and India.
Malaysia Airlines are in discussions to operate further cargo flights into Adelaide, and look forward to supporting the South Australian export markets accordingly.
